Would Ban Old Testament from Christian Faith

A demand to eliminate the Old Testament from the Christian faith is made by Prof. Willy Hellpach of the University of Heidelberg in a two-volume work “Between Wittenberg and Rome,” which appeared today.

In eliminating the Old Testament Professor Hellpach suggests that an exception be made to the Psalms of David and the Prophets. The stories of creation and the fall of man in the first book of Moses are cited by him as “dangerous and immoral.”
